Customer Reviews

Fresh and New Perspective

I have listened to podcasts for a long time. This one is great in that not only is it story telling it is also explaining how the story was captured and what went on behind the scenes. There are plenty of podcasts that tell stories. With this one I came away feeling like I learned something, not simply heard a story. Please keep up the good work!

Thoughtful firsthand histories

Too often hidden in archives, oral history interviews typically languish underused and unheard. The Wisdom Project has revealed hidden moments in old interviews, letting us hear unscripted thoughts from celebrities like Jackie O and MLK as well as the stories of everyday citizens. The hosts thoughtfully guide us along through the edited excerpts, putting the narrators in conversation with one another. Each time I leave the podcast contemplating and reflecting. The voices stick with me.

WISDOM wins.

With many podcasts to choose from, I want to laud a new member to the game. The folks at the Louie B. Nunn Oral History Center at the University of Kentucky have scored with their entry, the WISDOM PROJECT Podcast. They have mined their rich reservoir of oral history to show that using archival interviews can illuminate and inform.

And by showcasing excerpts from Jackie Kennedy and Colonel Sanders, they show their oral histories go beyond Kentucky to show a global reach. And the show's hosts beautifully contextualize the audio interviews, helping make each podcast's episode complete. Having knowledgeable hosts also help educate listeners to art and science of oral history. I highly recommend this podcast
